  Gary then asked his brother Gavin,“Did you see that twenty-dollar bill on the cash register?”Gavin said that he had not.But Gary did not let it go and kept questioning.“Twenty-dollar bills can’t get up and walk away by themselves!Surely you must have seen it.”There was accusation in Gary’s voice.Tempers began to rise and resentment grew.“I said I didn’t see it!”Gavin replied with anger.
  The quarrel divided the young men and they could no longer work together.Later,a wall was built in the center of the store.For twenty years,hostility never ended.
  One day,a strange man came to the store.He walked in and asked Gary,“How long have you been here?”Gary replied that he’d been there all his life.“Then you are the person I’m looking for,since I must confess something to you,”the customer said emotionally.“Twenty years ago,I was totally broke and hungry.I entered this store from the back door and saw a twenty-dollar bill on the cash register.And I took it.All these years I haven’t been able to forget that.I had to come back and ask for your forgiveness.”
  The stranger felt astonished when seeing tears well up in the eyes of the middle-aged man in front of him.“Would you please go next door and tell the same story to the man in the store?”Gary asked.Then something surprised the stranger even more—after hearing his story,the two middle-aged men hugged each other and wept together in the front of the wall of the store.
  After twenty years, the wall of resentment that set them apart finally came down.
